    @jayenguk Tell us a little bit about your goals and your plan for getting there: do you have a calorie goal? Exercise goal? It always helps me to have goals - particularly with regard to calories.

    Yes, and take some time to think of what habits worked best for you, and which are easiest to implement. What gives you the most return for your energy invested? Which are you most likely to stick with lifelong? Are there any that help keep you on track? Start there with those easiest ones.

    If you are still doing some habits (like logging onto MFP and joining in a challenge, ;) hi!) give yourself credit for those!

    I have always been over weight even as a child so my goal is to just be a normal weight... I want to get into my healthy bmi and I would love to be able to go running. Maybe that is my issue I dont have specific goals I just dont want to go back to the weight I was. I think my first goal that I want to aim for is to get under 200 pounds, I just seem to have stuck at the 240 area for months now just through a kind of self sabotage thing.

    Good evening all.

    Exercise - walked 100 minutes in 90F. Cut it shorter due to it. 95F tomorrow and 98F Friday then down to 70s Saturday. Time to get sick.

    @jayenguk pick one thing that is hurting you and work every day to change it. You don't have to make it perfect, just better than now. Work it every day until it becomes a habit, then add another one. Above all, don't get discouraged and quit. Maybe look for some overeaters meetings around you.

    CW: 265.8

    So annoying. Saw 262.4 Wednesday morning on scales and 3/4 days before that in a row. Decided to treat myself as I haven't in a while with food. I know it's just water weight and I didn't gain 3+lbs overnight but still annoying. Anyway back to it!

    @jayenguk I understand completely - that was my scenario too. I started out around the same weight you are now - and here's what worked for me: I visited with my doctor who gave me a calorie goal and an exercise goal. He said that I should begin with the calorie goal and work up to the exercise goal. He gave me a calorie goal of around 1,200 per day and the only exercise I was capable of at the time were short walks. But over time, that strategy worked and I did not find myself hungry. Do you think that coming up with one goal might help you to focus away from self-sabotage?
